Terracotta, SpringSource Partner on Java Scalability

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10 -- Two leaders in open source and Java application development, SpringSource and Terracotta, today announced a comprehensive partnership to simplify the development and deployment of enterprise Java applications and reduce the costs of their scale-out, tuning, and ongoing operations. Under terms of the agreement, SpringSource and Terracotta are tightly integrating their products and providing organizations with key resources and tools for quickly building and supporting specific vertical applications and processes powered by Java infrastructure.

As a first step, the two companies have already collaboratively developed reference implementations and best practice design patterns for processes such as authentication and authorization (Terracotta + Spring Security), workflow (Terracotta + Spring Workflow), and database offload (Terracotta + Spring MVC). In addition to application reference implementations, Terracotta and SpringSource are actively engaged in joint development to more tightly integrate their two solutions to include the SpringSource dm Server.

Organizations across a number of markets including e-commerce, health care, travel, telecommunications, banking and financial services have developed Java-based infrastructure using Terracotta and SpringSource as foundation technologies. Spring is the de facto standard platform to build, run, and manage enterprise Java applications; Terracotta is a breakthrough Java data management solution that reduces the operational and capital costs required to build and support reliable, scalable Web applications. For Java applications, Terracotta provides an infrastructure layer that drives simpler scalability by reducing database and custom development costs often associated with expanding application capacity.

"Terracotta and SpringSource have a common goal: simplify and reduce the cost of developing and operating enterprise Java application," says Terracotta CEO Amit Pandey. "As IT departments in organizations of all sizes try and do more with less, solutions like Terracotta and Spring are exactly what they need to meet their customers' strict requirements for reliable, high-performance applications and processes."

"Terracotta is the only Java clustering solution certified through SpringSource's Certified Solution Provider program and listed on the SpringSource Exchange, as it provides the most effective way to simplify Java application deployment and management," said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource. "SpringSource and Terracotta will continue to work together leveraging SpringSource Certified Software to build scalable and cost-effective Java infrastructure that support mission-critical applications and processes."
